Labor Day Weekend Activities In Destin

Labor Day Weekend Activities in Destin

Even though Hurricane Issac made landfall along the gulf coast, Labor Day Weekend is fast approaching and Destin is ready for all the activities!

With the kids being off for a holiday weekend you might be wondering what kind of Labor Day Weekend Activities are out there.

Although the weather forecast shows it raining all weekend, the biggest chance is 40%. Everyone who lives on the Gulf Coast knows that a 40% chance is not that big of a deal.

We may get a few showers throughout the day, or the rain may head north. This would allow you to enjoy a day at the beach and see who can build the most spectacular sand castle.

Once you get the sand off, head on over to The Village of Baytown Wharf. Beginning Friday August 31st at 5pm the fall season kicks off with a 3-day Baytowne Wharf Art Walk.

This art walk will be full of world class art from all over the southeast. You can browse around and find that perfect piece of art for your new home. Be sure to take a blanket and picnic to lounge and enjoy the live music.

On Saturday September 1 you can go enjoy the Jazz and Blues music put on by local merchants and Barefoot BBQ at Seaside Amphitheater.

If you like to run make sure you get some rest because beginning at 8am the Inaugural Alys Beach 5k & 1 Mile Fun Run begins.

The 5K course begins and ends at the Alys Beach Amphitheatre, and winds throughout the 158-acre resort town. And according to, the event will also include a one miler just for kids. Parents are welcome to tag along as a chaperone, but this race is designed specifically for children age 12 and under.

Ladies, don’t think I would forget to mention the enormous Silver Sands Factory Stores Labor Day Sale and Giveaway. They will be offering 3 Grand Prize Packages from August 31 – Sept 1.

All you have to do is register at the Shopper Services desk right near Michael Kors.

In addition to all this there will be FREE concerts and fireworks at Harbor Walk Village between 6-9pm on Sept 1-2.

So come and enjoy all the Labor Day Weekend activities in Destin. We look forward to seeing you!
